If you're already relying on Google calendar to track your various meetings and events, but are doing a good many other things in Notion, it can be helpful to bring your Google cal into your Notion pages.

An important note upfront--in this post, I'll be walking through how to embed a read-only version of your Google Calendar in your Notion pages, not a way to integrate events from Google calendar into a Notion database.

What does that mean? It means you will be able to see all your Google calendar events, and interact with that calendar with some basic features, but you won't be able to create new events from inside Notion--for that, you'll just need to click once to open a new Google cal window and create the event from there.

That out of the way, let's take a look at the steps to follow.

How to embed your Google Calendar in Notion

  1. Head over to your Google Calendar;
  2. Hit the wheel icon from the top right menu then select 'Settings';
  3. Locate the calendar you'd like to update (a colorful circle will be next to each in your account), then hit 'Access permissions for events';
  4. Select 'Make available to public';
  5. Next, locate the public URL for your calendar under 'Integrate calendar';
  6. Copy that URL to your clipboard, then head over to the Notion page you'd like to embed your calendar on;
  7. Hit 'Ctrl + V' or 'command + V' to paste this URL into an empty block on your Notion page, then select 'Create embed' from the dropdown menu that appears after pasting;
  8. Drag from the bottom right corner of the newly embedded calendar to resize your Google Calendar;
  9. Then you're good to go! You can now switch between months, views and select events from inside your embedded calendar to view more details!

Can you sync Google Calendar with Notion?

The honest short answer is, 'Not entirely'.

However, with the steps above, you should be able to embed and interact with your Google Calendar (in some limited ways) from inside your Notion pages--and at least keep everything all in one place!

Getting Started

You can use one of our free Notion template workspaces to test this out for yourself. Try embedding your Google Calendar into this Email Marketing Hub template by creating a new page in the menu, titling it 'Meetings' and adding your new Embed.
